The Shawshank Redemption
- 143 min
- Directed by: Frank Darabont
- Cast: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman
Banged up for a crime he didn't commit (ain't they all?) quiet man Robbins plans a slow but effective revenge on the unnecessarily harsh prison regime. Freeman excels as the fellow con with an uncanny knack for procuring desired items. The film is certainly overlong, but the apocryphal feel to the storytelling and the period detail are well handled in what is, ultimately, a very fine movie indeed.
